How Man Utd could line-up with Adama Traore as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyes Wolves ace to link-up with Rashford and Martial

MANCHESTER UNITED could be set to splash the cash in 2021 in their bid to become Premier League title contenders.

Fans were disappointed with the club’s summer transfer business as they failed to bring in a right winger or centre-back.

This is how Manchester United could start next season if they signed Adama Traore from Wolves

And they were unsuccessful in their quest to prise Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund in what was their best chance to sign him.

Even though the transfer window is closed, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been linked with a host of players – including Wolves ace Adama Traore.

Seen as an alternative to Sancho, the Red Devils are one of five clubs that are claimed to be ready to make a move for the 24-year-old.

However it has been said that Wolves will not part ways with Traore unless they receive a fee in the region of £90million.

United are understood to remain interested in RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano, 21, who has a bargain £36.5m release clause in his contract next summer.

And United could also look to replace the ageing Nemanja Matic, with Borussia Monchengladbach defensive midfielder Denis Zakaria, 23, being eyed up.

Should United sign all their targets, Solskjaer will know he has a side truly capable of winning silverware.

David De Gea would likely keep his place between the sticks ahead of Dean Henderson.

Meanwhile Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alex Telles could slot in as the full-backs, with Upamecano to partner Harry Maguire.

Should Paul Pogba stay, he would play alongside Zakaria in the middle of the pitch, with Bruno Fernandes to be deployed in an advanced role.

Traore would then start as United’s right winger, with Marcus Rashford on the opposite flank.

Anthony Martial would surely lead the line, though Mason Greenwood could also be an option for Solskjaer.
